Redskins, Andre Roberts agree to terms
Tuesday, March 11, 2014, 11:55am
This looks like a good signing by the Redskins, who have struggled to find a consistent option opposite Pierre Garcon. Roberts lost playing time in 2013 to an emerging Michael Floyd, but was the #39 WR in standard (and #34 in PPR) in 2012 while playing starter's snaps. New HC Jay Gruden has a history of airing it out, so the entire Washington passing game should get a boost. Another top 40 season is possible for the 26 year-old Roberts, assuming he starts.

Michael Floyd had two catches for 31 yards early against Houston and looked poised for a big game, but suffered an AC sprain of his right shoulder in the first quarter and didn’t return.
HC Bruce Arians said he expects Floyd to be ready for next week’s game against the Jaguars.
After not hearing a lot from Andre Roberts this year, he more than filled in as the No. 2 receiver alongside Fitzgerald. Roberts had a team-high five catches for 72 yards and the fourth-quarter score, which ended up being the difference in the victory.

Since Rob Housler has entered the lineup, receiver Andre Roberts’ playing time has diminished. In the first two games, he participated in an average of 73 percent of the plays. In the past three games, Roberts has averaged about 55 percent.
Roberts caught 11 passes in the first two games and only two since. The Cardinals have not compensated for the lost production.
“He’s played more outside receiver with Robbie back,” coach Bruce Arians said of Roberts, “so that’s going to probably affect his numbers and is something we’ll look at it.”
Roberts is droppable in 12-team formats given his recent production and playing time. He has talent, but the Cardinals' offense cannot support more than two fantasy receivers given its current state of (poor) play.
Larry Fitzgerald ACTIVE for Cardinals

It could be a sign that the Cards are worried about the status of Fitzgerald for Sunday's game. It presents a problem for owners in that the Cards play in the 4 p.m. game which likely means not knowing Fitzgerald's status until 3 p.m. Make sure you have a backup plan in case he doesn't play. Michael Floyd and Andre Roberts likely see a bump up if Fitz is held out.
